Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola reveals demands from owner Sheikh Mansour

Jose Mourinho has been impressed with the Lancaster-born midfielder's emergence this season

A comprehensive performance and victory over Spurs was a worth exclamation point at the end of their league campaign however, and they were confirmed as champions when West Brom won at Man Utd.

When asked by Thierry Henry at Sky Sports News how much it meant to win the title whilst sticking to his guns, Guardiola replied: "A lot".

City were regarded as genuine Champions League contenders this year, in what was their seventh consecutive season in the competition, but they were eliminated by Liverpool in the quarter-finals. They don't have a limit, they don't have a limit to spending and all that stuff so I don't know.

"When I came here the chairman and sporting director never said "You have to win the Champions League" or 'You have to win the Premier League, '" said Guardiola. "I don't know if we are able to do that".

The fixture will seem somewhat of a déjà vu as we met the French-side during exactly the same stage of the competition a year ago, where we lost 3-1 on aggregate following a 3-0 defeat at home and a 1-0 win away.

The engine that blew apart on Tuesday's Southwest flight would have been affected, since the company said it had 40,000 cycles. The CFM International service bulletin also called for airlines to repeat these inspections every 3,000 cycles or two years.

"The Premier League is the priority next season, absolutely". People said that was because we invested a lot, that is true, without good players you can not do that. "From pre-season and in the first and second games".

"They think that because they've done it once they will do it again and that makes them lose energy", explained Guardiola.

Swans boss Carlos Carvalhal claimed their trip to City will be the most hard game of the season during his pre-match press conference, but in many ways, his team have nothing to lose at the Etihad. "They say we are not the best team - and they are right". While they seem well on course to beat the record haul of 95 points achieved by Mourinho's Chelsea in 2004/05, many a keen football fan may readily admit feeling the heart stir at the prospect of watching City play live.

"For once, when the pundits say that, they are right".
